I think I missed a step in my explanation. I am trying to get back to 
the original suggestions on this topic  of using a single digit numeric 
suffix. This uses the mechanism already built into the client - thanks 
Don =) - which allows you to specify multiple alternative logins in the 
same config file. Each engine picks a suffix at random. There are three 
advantages to this:

    * it satisfies those who wanted a single digit suffix
    * it solves the problem with Mogo needing restarting
    * suffixes get selected automatically - this means the end users
      don't need to grab a suffix which is then solely used by then

Of course this relies on their being a standard shared password. If 
however you would prefer to stick with the one-suffix-per-user, I agree 
that the "2nd login causes boot" is a simple and effective solution, 
especially when combined with the other ideas!

So, shall I move back to the beta2 suffix (set by the user in the 
suffixes.txt file) so that we can go with the suggested approach?

Kind regards
